Friday Painting - Plein Air Joaquin Miller Park by jermilex Friday Painting - Plein Air Joaquin Miller Park by jermilex
Decided to get out and do some Plein Air painting (still with my laptop). I took some artistic liberties on this one and added a ton more atmosphere than was really there, but the "magic" of the place was what i was trying to capture. The grass was really this green. Everything in the Bay area is in full bloom right now. It was fun. I think this was about 20-30 minutes of work.

That's quite a challenge to work with the non-fixed lighting of outdoors on your screen! There is a good reason that you are responsible for teaching light and colour to the best of the best.

I would say something about how beautiful the picture is (because it is) but I'm totally stuck being flabbergasted at the fact that this only took you 20-30 minutes. I am in awe. IN AWE. O.O

Is that a just a single strokes or a scattered strokes?
You work insanely fast.
That will take me an hours to look like that.

um.... it's a mix of both single strokes and scattered strokes. I do have a few video tutorials here in my gallery that show my painting process if you're interested.

I always painting in single strokes.
I thought you paint everything on a single strokes. :)

for the most part I paint single strokes, but when it comes to forests and leaves i sometimes use a brush that gives more
